Tidbits from JOURNEY TO PUBLICATION: Micro-fiction

     Micro-fiction might be one type of story that is unfamiliar to a lot of people. It is defined by its length, its expectation, and its boundaries. JLB Creatives Publishing defines the length at 1-100 words.Within a small amount of space, the writer must convey something valuable - an entire story. It can be difficult to condense an idea into a "micro" of its original, though it is possible. Take the following conversation, for example.
In this case, one-word sentences make up an entire conversation and manage to convey a complete idea (though the above is not a complete micro-fiction story). It can be difficult to make a point with so few words, and since you are using so few, you must choose them carefully. Micro-fiction requires a writer's willingness to edit and re-edit multiple times. But this is only a part of micro-fiction.
     You must make sure your readers will want to read on. You have to be certain the story answers most of their questions but still leaves them with a few. Try to close your micro-fiction by sending the reader back into the story; unanswered questions are necessary in order to accomplish your mission. One of the best (and shortest) examples of micro-fiction is attributed to Ernest Hemingway: 
          "For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn." 
Mission accomplished!

2016 Kicks Off In Style for JLB Creatives - January 7th, 2016 BeaslePunk at OMA!

Hello faithful fans! Happy New Year! JLB Creatives is wishing for all of our super fans, great things to come to you throughout 2016. 

To say that we're starting off 2016 in style is an understatement! With the new year less than a week old, we're proud to announce that our BeaslePunk artists, Don and Janet (JLBCP CEO) Beasley have been invited to display a selection of their cosplay props at the Orlando Art Museum's "Dreams of Steam" exhibition taking place Thursday, January 7, 2016 from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Every first Thursday the Orlando Museum of Art kicks off a different themed exhibition featuring local artists and talent. For more information visit

Don and Janet submitted and had accepted for display during the event, "Oswald" the "living" automaton, and their two art pieces "Copper Dragon" and "Black Bart." 

Don will be appearing as Sir Bwana Beasle (sporting his first place costume), carrying "Raging Rhino," and will be on hand to meet n' greet with fellow art enthusiasts. Janet will be playing a big part in making Oswald come to life so you may not always "see" her out front.

During 2015 the BeaslePunk division of JLB Creatives made quite the splash. Their first appearance came in January at Renninger's Steampunk and Industrial show. They also displayed and sold their unique artwork at Leesburg Comicon, MegaCon Fandays - Orlando, FL, and the October Steampunk and Industrial show to name a few.

The following video was shot and edited by ThinkBolt on Youtube. You'll discover the BeaslePunk display starting at minute 1:29. And we invite you to view the entire video as there is so much to see! 

We hope to see you at the Orlando Museum of Art, January 7th, 2016 from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Admission charge required for entry for non OMA members. 

Visit to view the different galleries of Oswald, the Beasley's art pieces, and more!
